The Serie B club missed out on promotion to the top-flight, but they are already looking to bolster their attacking options ahead of next season
Super Eagles star Simy Nwankwo is a potential transfer target for Serie B side Monza according to reports from Calciomercato per Football Italia
Simy is a man in demand after his record-breaking season with Crotone in the Italian Serie A. Although the Pythagoreans suffered relegation, Simy’s performances stood out.
The Nigerian international scored 20 league goals to become the first African player to reach that mark since Samuel Eto’o scored 21 for Inter Milan in the 2010/2011 season.
Simy’s performances have not gone unnoticed among Italian clubs, with Sampdoria and Genoa among the sides interested in his services.
However, it appears Monza are now in the pole position to sign him. I Biancorossi missed out on promotion to the Serie A last season but are looking to have another crack next season and have identified Simy as one of the players that could help them in their mission.
The former Gil Vicente forward already has experience in Italy’s second division with Crotone. Simy spent two seasons with Crotone in Serie B, scoring 20 goals in the 2019/2020 campaign to help them secure promotion to the top-flight.
